What you are basically saying is that you liked the replacement refs. You like it when the game is decided by a third party and not the people involved. You don't like it when the "referee" stays out of the way as much as possible and let's the players play. I'm sure that is fine in WWE or other fake entertainment sports, but in politics just like in the NFL, it is a distraction.
Lehrer maintained control, kept things on topic and WAS NEARLY INVISIBLE... which is what a moderator SHOULD BE.
I get it.. you want the ref to rip off his shirt and throw a chair in the ring.. that's fine...that's fun and entertaining, but it's not constructive.
